New Study - 'Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the biological, psychological and social sciences'
Two noted scholars, Dr. Lawrence Mayer and Dr Paul McHugh, recently published a 143 page study in the New Atlantis Journal. The Study analysed scientic peer-reviewed research studies from the biological, psychological and social sciences over the past 60 years. Dr Lawrence S. Mayer is Professor of Statistics and Biostatistics at Arizona State University (and a a scholar in residence at John Hopkins University). Paul McHugh is Professor of Psychiatrics at John Hopkins University Medical School.
The Study confirms many of the positions relating to sexuality that we have consistently presented over the past twenty years - on individuals not being 'born that way'; on gender identity; on change of gender identity in children; and the increased health, mental health and substance abuse rates within the homosexual community.
With society's endorsement of homosexuality, and the current push for homosexual 'marriage', we all need to take a hard look at what the real issues are...
The EXECUTIVE SUMMARY is SHORT - about two pages - and provides the essential findings from the study. We strongly recommend that you at least read this!
The Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity and the NARTH Institute provided the following BRIEF summary:

GAY MARRIAGE HAS ALREADY BEEN CONSIDERED 18 TIMES BY PARLIAMENT. LET THE PEOPLE PUT AN END TO THIS DIVISIVE ISSUE ONCE FOR ALL.
"Same-sex marriage had been considered at least 18 times by the Parliament. Several parliamentary inquries since laws were amended in 2008 have found there is no discrimination against same-sex couples in Australian law.
This is such a big change with big consequences for free speech and children’s education that all Australians should be allowed to have a say in a peoples’ vote, as promised by the Coalition parties which won the election.
It was disappointing to see Opposition Leader Bill Shorten speaking condescendingly today to an Anglican priest who raised legitimate concerns about Mr Shorten’s marginalisation of people who wish to preserve the definition of marriage.
It really is time that silencing slurs like ‘homophobe’ and ‘bigot’ were dropped from the debate so there can be a free and respectful discussion of the issues.
Despite Mr Shorten’s rhetoric regarding the plebiscite, I expect that Labor will eventually allow enabling legislation for a people’s vote to pass the Senate.
Regardless of the political posturing and brinkmanship over the plebiscite, one thing is certain and that is the issue of redefining marriage will not go away.
People are only just starting to realise the consequences of such a big change and they should not be denied the chance to discuss these in a respectful national plebiscite.
Whether or not a plebiscite goes ahead (and again, I think it will), those of us who care about marriage cannot afford to again go back to sleep.
Joining the battle when there is an emergency is commendable. But preventing things from getting to emergency stage is much more preferable.
Regardless of what happens, we all need to continue to participate in the marriage debate"
By Mark Brown
"A people’s vote on redefining marriage has been promised. Many of us have same-sex attracted friends and family. Is it possible to love them whilst saying no to same-sex marriage?
Not everyone thinks so – or would like you to think so.
The media in particular fan the flames of ‘unlove’ by regularly labelling those opposed to same-sex marriage as ‘anti-gay’. This is incredibly unhelpful.
A prominent gay leader has described the upcoming plebiscite as, “a national vote on whether their country accepts them [same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people]”. This rhetoric, I believe, is very dangerous. It only casts ‘no’ in a negative light. It does nothing to encourage the “high-quality debate” he says he desires and, in fact, reinforces any rejection LGBTI youth may already be feeling.
I believe saying ‘no’ to same-sex marriage is a way of showing love, not rejection. Here’s why:
1. It is not unloving to tell the truth about marriage. Marriage is clearly different to a same-sex relationship – for reasons of biology, sociology and anthropology. To call them the same thing is to deny the truth. As Aristotle said, “The worst form of inequality is to try and make unequal things equal.”
2. It is not unloving to put the rights of children first. As a society we see it as a tragedy when, due to events like desertion or death, a child misses out on the love and care of both their mum and dad. For a government to make a law that mandates this loss is not putting the rights of the child first. It is loving to ensure, where possible, every child is raised by their mother and father.
3. It is not unloving to fully consider the consequences of an action before taking it. Atheist columnist Brendan O’Neill warns, “everywhere gay marriage has been introduced it has battered freedom, not boosted it.” Whether it is freedom of conscience, speech or freedom for parents to remove their children from ‘sexual diversity-celebrating’ sex education classes, all have been further restricted to some degree in countries that have redefined marriage.
Here are a few other important considerations:
1. True tolerance: To reject someone else’s view is not to reject them. It is possible to strongly disagree with someone and still be friends. A healthy and mature society can have these conversations without personal vitriol and name-calling.
2. Marriage is precious. For thousands of years across all cultures, religions and countries, marriage has been solely a male/female thing. In the last 15 or so years 23 of some 200 countries have changed the legal definition of marriage. Redefining the age-old institution of marriage is no small thing. Many are legitimately concerned about the consequences. Its impact will likely take generations to fully assess.
3. Don’t believe everything you hear. In general the Australian media are very supportive of redefining marriage. The prominence and focus of the issue is therefore often overrated. Get-Up!, the so called progressive lobby group, when it surveyed its nearly 1 million Australian supporters last year found the issue to be of lowest priority – it was number 16 out of 16 in importance!
4. Isn’t the result inevitable? The Brexit vote, like our republican referendum, are important reminders not to take for granted the silent majority.
Whether the upcoming plebiscite shows support for redefining marriage or not, the issue will continue to be the subject of debate.
Whether you say ‘yes’ or ‘no’, it can be said in love.
This article was originally published in the Examiner.
Sky News host of The Latest, Laura Jayes, interviewed Australian Christian Managing Director Lyle Shelton on 23 August 2016 about some of the consequences of redefining marriage.
He said millions of Australians have a different views about marriage and they should not be characterised as haters. They should be free to have their views expressed.
Lyle said he was surprised by the big effort to undermine the plebiscite even though there are claims made that there is overwhelming support for same-sex marriage. He believes that a discussion about marriage should be welcomed by the community.
"New polling shows the people might vote to preserve the definition of marriage. This is being used as a reason not to have a peoples’ vote. Go figure.
Polling which questions public support for changing the definition of marriage in law is now being used as an argument to deny the people a say.
Australian Christian Lobby Managing Director Lyle Shelton said news today that the Australian Labor Party was using polling which showed a lack of public support for changing the Marriage Act to undermine the plebiscite was extraordinary.
Asked on morning television about the polling, the Prime Minister said it was ‘anti-democratic’ and that it ‘destroyed the credibility of the argument’ against conducting a peoples’ vote.
“The Prime Minister is right to call this out,” Mr Shelton said.
“It is disappointing that those advocating such a big change don’t trust the people to have their say.”
Mr Shelton said the Parliament has rejected changing the Marriage Act on at least 17 occasions, including by a margin of two-one back in 2012 and again as recently as last June when Opposition Leader Bill Shorten tried.
“This is an issue that has been prosecuted by fatiguing members of Parliament over many years. It is only right that the issue now goes to the people to decide what is a very big change with big consequences.”
Mr Shelton said the Greens’ argument that minority rights should not be subjected to a democratic vote was illogical and dangerous to democracy.
It was also strange given the Green’s support for a plebiscite just last August.
“A public policy change for a minority which has big consequences for the majority should be allowed to be discussed by those whose rights and freedoms will be affected by the change,” Mr Shelton said.
Consequences include denial of mothering and fathering to children, legal persecution through anti-discrimination law of those who dissent and compulsory programs like “Safe Schools” teaching children, among other things, that their gender is fluid.
“There is no reason why Australians cannot have a respectful and mature debate about this far-reaching change. This opportunity should not be denied the Australian people.”
I oppose same-sex marriage (and no, I'm not a bigot)
By Michael Jensen Posted 28 May 2015, 9:14amThu 28 May 2015, 9:14am
We are told there are those in favour of same-sex marriage, and then there are the bigots. But allow me to make the case for traditional marriage as being between one man and one woman, writes Michael Jensen.
The passing of the Irish referendum on same-sex marriage has triggered a round of Australian advocates announcing that it is now "our turn". We lag behind the UK, many European countries, some states in the US, and (perish the thought!) New Zealand, and we ought to get with the programme.
The Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, in line with the new ALP dogma, has announced that he is introducing a private members bill into Parliament next Monday. He has said:
It's time for our laws to reflect the values of modern Australia and to include everyone as equals ... It's time for marriage equality.
Whatever our religious views about marriage ... I believe we have to change this law which discriminates against adult couples on the basis of who they love.
How could anyone stand opposed? The terms in which the pro-marriage redefinition case are stated make it sound as inevitable as the dawn, and as unstoppable as the tide. And these same terms make opposing a redefinition of marriage sound primitive and even barbaric. There are those in favour of change, we are told, and then there are the bigots.
But simply saying "it's time" doesn't make an argument. Neither does the need to keep up with the O'Haras, the Smiths, and the Pedersens. Neither does the support of TV stars, comedians, or even Bono. At best, these are arguments from fashion.
It is not even the case that "all the surveys say Australians want it" is a sufficient argument. The surveys say that Australians want capital punishment. Wisely, our politicians don't listen to surveys on that issue (and I agree with them). They should exercise leadership, not follow opinion.
Could it be that if you haven't heard the case opposing a change to the marriage law, it is because the language of those advocating it has been so emotive that the contrary case can't be heard above the noise? ...
Nevertheless, I don't think that the case for change is anywhere near as convincing as its proponents think it is. The case has been made almost entirely in terms of "equality" and its alleged opposite: "discrimination". The argument is that applying the word "marriage" to some relationships and not to others is unequal treatment, and thus discrimination. These are both apparently self-evidently bad.
But it is the duty of the law to judiciously discriminate and to appropriately recognise difference with, at times, unequal treatment of things that are not the same. It isn't automatically wrong to discriminate per se.
This is where Bill Shorten again misunderstands what marriage is. As we now understand it, marriage is not merely the expression of a love people have for each other. It is, or is intended as, a life-long union between two people who exemplify the biological duality of the human race, with the openness to welcoming children into the world. Even when children do not arrive, the differentiated twoness of marriage indicates its inherent structure.
Now, I didn't pluck this definition from the sky, nor is it simply a piece of religious teaching. It is the meaning of marriage that emerges from all human cultures as they reflect on and experience what it is to be male and female. It is only in the last 15 years that anyone has seriously thought differently.

Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of the propagandists who set the gay juggernaut on its course. In fact they could easily have been students of his tactics. In the following article: Truth-Telling and Homosexuality, we see how the juggernaut in on the verge of total domination of the West:
"If ever there was a subject which is almost universally surrounded in falsehoods, deception and misinformation, it is the topic of homosexuality. So powerful is the homosexual juggernaut that very few media outlets are left which will dare to challenge anything it claims.
Not only is the lamestream media pretty much useless here, but the activists have done a great job of taking over the schools, the judiciary, the political sphere, and even the corporate arena. There is almost nothing that takes more courage today, and features more risks, than daring to publicly resist the radical homosexual agenda."

Labor Party research shows a plebiscite will fail. The people DO NOT WANT GAY MARRIAGE. Therefore they seek to silence the people's voice. Don't let them. SPEAK UP.
The Australian People Should Have a Say on Marriage
The Coalition made it an election promise and the Labor Party want to do everything in their power to break it. You have to wonder why? On the Bolt Report last night, host, Andrew Bolt revealed: "Labor now says its research suggests the Plebiscite will actually fail. The public doesn’t want same-sex marriage. So, Labor does not want that public… …
"It’s official – the Daniel Andrews government is now the most radical, gender-bending government our state has ever had.
Here’s the latest from the Premier who wants to make the radical, so-called “Safe Schools” program mandatory…
The government has now introduced a law that would allow anyone to walk into Birth Deaths and Marriages and change the gender on their birth certificate regardless of whether they have had a sex change operation or not.
Birth certificates are reserved for recording biological facts at birth, not gender identity.
The Victorian Government wants to allow people to be able to change their “sex” on their birth certificate by merely stating that they wish to self-identify as the other sex.
The Bill explicitly seeks to create ‘same-sex marriage’ by providing that where a married person changes sex to that of the other partner, the marriage will continue to be valid.
Rainbow activists are lobbying MP’s to see these changes become law.
So please click here to see how you can help protect Victoria from becoming a State that trashes real identity from birth certificates and threatens women’s safety."
Plebiscite the fastest way to a parliamentary vote: PM. Arguing against it on the grounds that a no vote might win is anti-democratic.
The prime minister indicated only holding a plebiscite would lead to a parliamentary vote.
"There is no question that the fastest way, the way to guarantee that there is a vote in the parliament on gay marriage in this parliament, is to support the plebiscite," Mr Turnbull told ABC TV.
Arguing that it shouldn't (go ahead) because the no vote might win was "the most anti-democratic argument".

The utter hypocrisy of those running the campaign to block a plebiscite on redefining marriage is almost beyond belief.
Prime Minister Turnbull is being wrongly accused of wanting to delay the plebiscite by some of the very people who want to stop the plebiscite!
The Turnbull government has a mandate for plebiscite on marriage. Labor and the Greens are attempting to block any bill to enable the plebiscite. For legislation enabling a plebiscite to be passed, the Coalition need at least 8 other Senators from the cross-bench.

Marriage is worth defending. Although the media may make you feel you are alone, you are not alone: "There is nothing homophobic about supporting traditional marriage." - Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard. “You will never build a society on it. You will not build a nation on it.” - Former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating on same-sex marriage. It is "an affront to the Aboriginal People of Australia to suggest another definition of marriage." - Statement from 70 Aboriginal leaders opposing same-sex "marriage.'

5 Reasons to Defend Traditional Marriage and Family by Saying “No” to Same-sex ‘Marriage’
1. Same-sex “marriage” is not marriage. It is very different so call it something else.
Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Homosexual union denies the obvious biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It denies the purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and the raising of children. Two different things cannot be considered the same thing. Marriage is not just any relationship. It is a relationship governed by a principle of nature. Men and women "fit" together.
2. Same-sex "marriage" uses the law to teach, promote and normalize homosexual sex acts to children.
How can teaching children that homosexual sex acts are healthy and normal be in any way a public good for society? The rectum is designed to excrete human waste out of the anus and historically homosexual sex acts are responsible for millions of AIDS deaths and orphaned children around the world. How can normalizing such behavior be a good thing?
3. Same-sex “marriage" Always denies a child either a father or a mother.
Same-sex “marriage” intentionally makes children orphans and ignores a child’s best interest. Mums and Dads matter to every child.
4. Recognizing Same-sex “marriage” confuses children, divides communities, restricts freedom of speech, religion and conscientious objection, validates and promotes homosexual sex acts.
Laws teach. They influence patterns of thought and behavior and shape the life of society. It will teach that sodomy is normal. Worse, it encourages children to do it or to let adults do it to them. The State will become a promoter of dangerously unhealthy sex acts responsible for epidemics including AIDS, hepatitis, anal cancer, gonorrhea and gastro infections. The State will force people opposed to this to accept it, will order schools to teach the acceptability of homosexual sex acts to children, and will punish anyone who resists. Freedom to speak against homosexual behavior will be abolished. Religious practice and freedoms will need to be regulated by the State. Conscientious objectors will be dealt with. Citizens will be intimidated, blacklisted and discriminated against. Fear and division will reign in place of freedom.
5. A moral wrong cannot be a civil right if our society is to continue to flourish.
Same-sex “marriage” is not a human rights issue similar to the struggle for racial equality or women's rights. Sexual behavior and race are very different realities. Two individuals, no matter their “race” are still man and woman, and thus the requirements of nature are respected. Racism has nothing to do with making "sodomy," and all the other highly dangerous sex and lifestyle acts performed by homosexuals, a human rights issue. They are completely different, morally and in every other way and need to be restrained in society not normalized and encouraged.

Safe Schools: Australian Chinese community petition against anti-bullying program lodged in NSW
By Danuta Kozaki
Updated earlier today at 12:16amWed 24 Aug 2016, 12:16am
A petition against the Safe Schools program with more than 17,000 signatures from the Australian Chinese community has been tabled in the New South Wales Parliament.
The Liberal Member for Epping, Damien Tudehope, lodged the petition on Tuesday and said there were significant concerns about the program in migrant communities in north-western Sydney and throughout the city.
The petition is calling on the program to be scrapped in NSW schools, saying it "promotes a particular ideology, including gender fluidity, that is contrary to our cultural and belief system".
Mr Tudehope said he represented one of the most multicultural electorates in Sydney.
"One thing that our migrant communities have in common is that they won't allow anyone interfering with their parental rights, and programs like Safe Schools represent an attack on the rights of all parents," Mr Tudehope said in a statement.
"Definitely there is a need to talk to kids about bullying, but it is clear that Safe Schools is not the answer.
"Safe schools," restrictions on freedoms bought with the blood of the ANZACS, and same-sex "marriage" are a package deal.
“Safe Schools”, restrictions to freedoms and same-sex marriage are a package deal

What’s behind the latest porn ring bust?
As the police bust the latest porn ring, society ignores what feeds it. The ubiquity of on-line porn, “Safe Schools” programs which sexualise children and a porn-trade representative in the Victorian Parliament mean no-one should be surprised about the latest police bust of an on-line porn ring operating in 70 schools.
What is the nature of marriage and what are the consequences for redefining it?
Marriage is based on:
Redefining marriage does not simply expand the existing understanding of marriage; it rejects these truths. It will legally discriminate against those who hold the traditional view of marriage, that marriage is only between a man and a woman,
and potentially will outlaw the legitimate view of millions of people that homosexual sex acts are unnatural, unhealthy and immoral.
Laws teach. A law which promotes and protects something (homosexual sex) which billions of people around the world have always considered to be physically and mentally harmful will cause social havoc, division and confusion. It will restrict freedom of speech and religion. It will effectively silence and possibly eventually criminalize those who publicly disagree with homosexual marriage. It will enslave people in many ways rather than advance human flourishing and freedom,
If the law and resources of the state proactively require affirmation of homosexual behavior under threat of punishment, and silences a vast majority of citizens, we no longer live in a free country. The indoctrination of school children by the state, restrictions on what Christian and Jewish Australians can speak about in public, good citizens imprisoned and fined for speaking what they legitimately hold to be truth. Australia will no longer be young and free.
Defending marriage is defending children. Children need adults to protect them, to speak up for them, to make wise choices for them, to preserve the best world they can for them, to be good stewards of the present so the children do not suffer in the future. This site aims to speak up for children, who need protection from harmful ideas, like the normalization of homosexual sexual practices and lifestyle, and who need both a mum and a dad. and a stable home.
Marriage is society’s least restrictive means of raising and ensuring the safety and well-being of children. It needs protection.
By encouraging the norms of marriage—monogamy, sexual exclusivity, and permanence—the state strengthens civil society and reduces its own role.
Marriage is not a fad or plaything of selfish adults, politicians, radicals, militant homosexuals, Marxists and social anarchists. It is a foundation of good society. If we dismantle this foundation we dismantle much of what is good in our nation.
The future of marriage depends on citizens understanding what marriage is and why it matters and then speaking up boldly and insisting that government policies support, not undermine, true marriage.
This site aims to assist you to investigate the same-sex marriage issue and to then defend true marriage and true family, before we lose them. Do it for your children, your grandchildren and for your country.
The future of this country as we know it depends on the future of true marriage and how well YOU defend it right NOW. Please read these "5 Reasons to say "No" to same-sex 'marriage'" and then take action and distribute them on your social media.
“You will never build a society on it. You will not build a nation on it.” - Paul Keating on same-sex marriage. "No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous... Homosexuality is not an inborn trait." Dr. Camille Paglia (Homosexual). Like the deceptive way wholesome words and images like "gay" and the "rainbow" have been hijacked by groups who oppose marriage and family, the words "marriage equality" are equally deceptive. There is no equality for anybody to be found by undermining marriage and family, it is found by strengthening, honoring, protecting and upholding these foundational institutions.
Legalising same-sex "marriage" will normalize and promote homosexual sex acts (anal sex and other unnatural and dangerous sex acts common in homosexual communities) in our society and in schools across our nation. The purpose of the anus is so obviously to excrete germ carrying human waste out of the rectum. Why are our governments in the West being so intimidated by political correctness that they are actively joining in the promotion of the normalization of something (homosexual anal sex) which is responsible for epidemics which continue to kill millions of human beings and leave millions of children orphaned?
They are falling for this mainly because the majority of citizens have also been intimidated and are not actively urging their political representatives to protect our society from this threat. Please TAKE ACTION today.
The aim of the anti-traditional marriage and family movement is to abolish marriage. “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there.” “It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.” - Masha Gessen (Homosexual activist).
The homosexual agenda does not stop at same-sex "marriage." "What next? Dis-establish marriage. Abolish the legal category" of marriage. -Tamara Metz (Homosexual activist).
There are some, though a minority, within homosexual communities who genuinely do want to be legally married. Their cause has been hijacked by extremists. The majority of people behind this movement who oppose traditional marriage and family do not genuinely want it, they want to expand their political agendas, subjugate Christians, push God and the Bible out of their lives and society, increase State control over people's lives and continue the sexual revolution which has made sexual autonomy and so called sexual "freedom" their god.
True marriage is under attack by militant homosexual activists, social anarchists, political totalitarians, and anti-Western forces, who want to undermine and destroy true marriage and family. This is not the final goal though. This extreme-left movement will not stop at this.
This site seeks to compile articles, quotes, resources and arguments to expose the mass deception called "marriage equality," which seeks to destroy our society from the foundations up, and to awaken the silent majority out of their passive slumber, to rise up and defend true marriage and family and protect our society. Start your own blogs. Write to politicians. Speak to your neighbor about this. Fund advertisements in the media. Run for parliament. Speak up, while you still can.
Think for yourself. Ideas have consequences. Ask yourself what the consequences will be if we change marriage. Read this list of consequences to help start you off.
Marriage is only, and has only ever been, and will only ever remain, a union of one man and one woman for life, for the benefit of the man, the woman and society, and if possible for the bringing into this world and the nurture and upbringing of children, for the betterment of the child and our society as a whole.
Gender matters. Fathers matter. Mothers matter. The only true gender balance and equality for a man and woman is found in true marriage. The only structure where gender balance and equality is perfectly fulfilled is in true marriage. The best gender balance for a child is one father and one mother equally raising the child. It is worth defending.
"The price of freedom is high. It always has been. It's a price I'm willing to pay, and if I'm the only one so be it. But, I'm willing to bet I'm not." Captain America ("The Winter Soldier"), talking about fighting Hydra who had infiltrated Shield and were using its resources to spread a mass deception and destroy all which is good and noble in the name of "freedom" but which really meant their freedom to silence all their opponents by the bullet, take full control and spread their tyranny.

"Safe Schools" child abuse program has damaged Australia's children already. Ban it immediately - MP. Parents urged to claim compensation.
© AAP Image/Mal Fairclough Activist Carolyn Cage holds as sign as thousands of Melbournians rally outside the State Library in Melbourne to support the LGBTI student program.
More than 17,000 people have signed a petition urging the NSW government to scrap the controversial Safe Schools program that targets bullying.Liberal MP Damien Tudehope will on Tuesday lodge the petition in parliament on behalf of the Australian-Chinese community, paving the way for MPs to debate whether the taxpayer-funded program should be dumped.
The conservative member for Epping, who has previously dubbed the program a "Trojan horse", said the petition was signed by people from across Sydney, and not just in his electorate.
"You could definitely say this is the beginning of the end for Safe Schools," he said.
"Any program which divides and polarises the community in such a way cannot possibly deliver the anti-bullying outcomes it proposes".
Mr Tudehope said he had also received objections from the Korean, Lebanese and Indian communities, and would not be surprised if similar petitions arose.
"One thing that our migrant communities have in common is that they won't allow anyone interfering with their parental rights and programs like Safe Schools represent an attack on the rights of all parents," he said.
The petition comes after Christian Democrat MLC Reverend Fred Nile, who holds the balance of power, reportedly met with Premier Mike Baird to urge him to axe the program.
Mr Tudehope told AAP he would keep pressing the issue in NSW.
"This is a national issue and governments would be irresponsible to continue to ignore these very legitimate and reasonable concerns," he said.
The Safe Schools program was set up to stop the bullying of gay and transgender students.
The federal government announced sweeping changes to the program earlier this year after an independent review found a number of lessons and content were inappropriate for children.
The Rainbow's preferred means of “debate” is to simply attack you, call you names, and smear your reputation if you dare to disagree with them.
Excerpts from an important Bill Muehlenberg article "You Have No Right To Speak Unless You Are a Lefty.
"That the radical left is not in the least bit interested in what the masses think and believe is quite apparent by the appalling disdain they show for genuine public debate. They do not want real debate to take place, and they do not want the ordinary citizen to be able to have a say in important social and political issues.
The secular left pretends it is the voice of the people, but the truth is, it can’t stand the people. It does not want them to have a voice at all. They think their “superior” views are the only legitimate views out there.
Or as Mark Steyn more recently put it, “The Left does not want to win the debate, it wants to shut down the debate.” And we find this happening time and time again. Consider the issue of homosexuality and homosexual marriage. The left does not want these matters discussed and debated – they want them force fed on a hapless population whether they like it or not.
And their preferred means of “debate” is to simply attack you, call you names, and smear your reputation if you dare to disagree with them. Dare to appeal to facts, to history, to the wellbeing of children, or what have you, and you will be met with all the usual responses: “You are a bigot.” “You’re homophobic”. “You are hateful.”
Yep, that sure beats having to engage in actual debate. Just fling mud, resort to ad hominems, and never actually engage with a real argument. Thus the activists on the left simply seek to browbeat everyone into submission. They are not interested in debate – they want complete domination.
They may pay lip service to genuine debate, the merits of democracy, and the place of free speech, but they demonstrate by their actions that they really care about none of these things. They want to implement their radical agendas, and want to shut down any voices to the contrary.
We have had plenty of examples of this with the homosexual marriage debate, and the issue of a people’s plebiscite on it. It seems every activist and their media buddies are demanding that we abandon the plebiscite. On the one hand they claim that everyone plus their uncle fully favours homosexual marriage, yet they are actually terrified of putting it to a vote.
They claim Australia overwhelmingly supports homosexual marriage yet they are doing everything they can to prevent people from actually having a say on this. Incredible. Just what are they so afraid of? Why are they so hostile to what ordinary Australians might say on this issue?
The latest example of this blatant hatred of democracy, free speech, and the common man comes from Tasmania. There the big cheese activists have made it perfectly clear that every single one of us should just sit down and shut up. Our opinions are not welcome, and they will decide how we proceed on these matters, thanks very much.
Consider this shocker from a recent newspaper article:
Anti-Discrimination Commissioner Robin Banks has spoken out against the plebiscite on same-sex marriage, saying the rights and freedoms of society should not be the subject of a popularity opinion poll. “Equality in marriage should not be the subject to the whims of the majority,” Ms Banks said at a rally in Hobart. The rally on the lawns of Parliament House today attracted about 80 people, including Tasmanian Greens Senators Peter Whish Wilson and Nick McKim and State Greens leader Cassy O’Connor.
Wow, did you get that? The “whims of the majority”! Yep, we sure do not want the Australian people deciding on something as utterly important and revolutionary as redefining the very nature of marriage and family, and overthrowing millennia of human wisdom and common sense on these matters.
Who are these mere cretins to speak out on such issues? They must just remain silent while a handful of activists and leftist elites decide all this for us. After all, they know so much better than the common man. They are so wise and so knowledgeable.
But the other 99.9 per cent of us are just too dumb to be able to voice our opinions on this. Indeed, our voice counts for nothing. Who are we to defy the activists and the gender benders? Why, that would amount to things like free speech and real democracy if the masses actually had the right to speak on such things.
We sure do not want that now do we? What next? Allow free and open elections for who runs the country? Boy, that rabble is getting carried away here. We will let the experts and the sexperts decide for the rest of us. After all, they must know what is best for us.
But wait, there’s more. Get a load of this:
Psychologist Tim Sanderson told the rally that linking public votes to marriage equality could lead to poor mental health. Mr Sanderson said the Australian Psychological Society fully supported that the marriage equality process should not be put to a public vote. “The APS recognises that a public vote presents significant risks to the wellbeing of those affected,’’ Mr Sanderson said.
“Risks to the wellbeing of those affected”? Really. Hey, am I not affected? Are not children affected? Is not all of Australia affected? Is not every family in this country affected? But we must all just shut up and not be allowed to share our concerns.
Only the radical left social activists are allowed to speak about this. Only they can decide what the entire nation must do on this. Not us poor slobs. We must simply remain silent and submit to the diktats of our elites. The masters will decide for us. Ours is simply to obey.
Um, did we not hear this sort of thing before? Did we not send millions of our sons to die on foreign beaches and far-flung battlefields to challenge this sort of totalitarianism? Did we not decide that dictatorship, tyrants and Brave New Worlds were not to be the world’s future, but a free people?
Did we not witness the bloodshed of so many to keep us a free people? And now we are seeing all that being stamped on by the homosexual jackboots. They have become the new rainbow fascists who will demand the total compliance of the masses to the dictatorship of the pink elites.
Sorry, I will never submit to these sexual Stalinists. I refuse to bow down and worship at the feet of the pink mafia. If they so despise democracy, so hate freedom of speech, and so deplore the common man, then they can go take a hike. They should move to North Korea or somewhere more fitting of their tyrannical ideology.
But they have no place in a free and democratic Australia. I am shocked that every media outlet in the nation did not decry and condemn in the strongest terms these militants as they seek to silence the masses and pretend only they can speak and act on these matters.
But as usual, we heard crickets chirping. The mainstream media is totally in bed with the homosexual militants. Indeed, many in the MSM are in their camp, and they are doing all they can to shut down free and genuine debate, and turn 21st Century Australia into some 20th Century dictatorship and pink hell hole.
The other day columnist Andrew Bolt penned a piece entitled “We’re mad as hell and it’s time to speak out”. Well, that about summarises where I am at – and millions of other ordinary Australians. He documented a number of recent cases of the Stalinist left crushing free speech while vilifying conservatives.
He concluded with the words: “This assault by the Left on free speech has abused our intelligence and our freedom. Australians, insulted and offended, are now saying they are as mad as hell and will not take this any more. It’s time to fight.”
I hear ya Andrew. And I am fighting. Who will join me?"
"I would never align myself to a community as intolerant and self-absorbed as the LGBT community, a community that demands tolerance with fervor and passion, yet does not give it in return. In fact, this community attacks anyone who does not agree with them, no matter how lovingly any difference of opinion is expressed." - Brandi Walton (Raised in a home by two lesbians).
"The gender confusing same-sex socialist assault on marriage, family and children in Australia will destroy the young and free nation our forefathers fought and died for. The division will lead to violence, fear, mob rule, increases in crime rates, drug abuse, and mental illness, as well as rampant epidemics of sexually transmitted diseases."
Celebrating destructive behavior destroys good society. The example is set from the top and trickles down through the whole society.
"Only restraint of harmful behavior creates a good society. Encouraging the masses to embrace bad behavior destroys good society. One of the legitimate roles of government is to restrain behavior which will be harmful to a society. We suddenly find ourselves in Australia with a situation where such behavior is not only not being restrained but it is being fully encouraged and even taught to our nation's school children under the deception called "Safe Schools Coalition" funded by our government."
The arrogant rainbow plotters are getting very bold. But they haven't won yet. Push back the rainbow.

"No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous... Homosexuality is not an inborn trait."
'The 'Born This Way' slogan is by far one of the most powerfully reckless, destructive, poisonous deceptions ever spread over our world. It may well achieve what Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao could only dream about."

True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
